Check out Stevie’s much more British memories of childhood television … on the Blog Hop.
This week’s theme focuses on which television programmes we would like to bring back from our childhood, and why.
I was a child in the 1960’s, when children tended to play outside rather than sit goggling at the box. Our TV set was black and white, and we all took it in turns in the evenings to walk about with the aerial to try and obtain a better picture. There were no programmes after about 10pm I think, when the National Anthem would be played and then a black dot would appear on the screen signifying the end of broadcasting for the day.
The television set was never turned on at all until after 6pm, a routine I have carried on into adulthood. Mum always told me that no child needed to spend hours and hours watching mindless TV programmes, and now I’m older, I tend to agree with her!
